The combined tax rate on regular taxable income over $135,054 but not exceeding $509,000 remains at 46.41% (for all rates applicable to this taxable income level, refer to the second line for Ontario in the chart.) (2) The combined rate for Yukon eligible dividends assumes the Yukon taxpayer has only dividend income.
